How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t lead into your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a B & B Heating & Cooling technician. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but regular air conditioner maintenance can help your system perform, keeping you comfortable and cool throughout the summer. These annual services do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also critical for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner operating as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be upkept, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are getting all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Florissant are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to fail. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or maintenance in the middle of the season. Our experts can find signals and indicate problems for your air conditioner and caution you long before any problems occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its top performance, you could detect a reduction in your energy bills throughout the year. What will take place during an air conditioner tune-up? Refrigerant charge check – Refrigerant levels need to be just right for your air conditioner to be working properly. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Technicians will always look at these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and regulate things accordingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the hygiene of your filters will always be examined during a maintenance visit. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also make the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our professionals will inspect that no dust or other particles have gathered on the exterior or indoor coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than needed and is vital to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will ensure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
